I'm not worried.
1. PL is in still in the organization but I do believe he's loosened the reins on his GM.
2. Joe Sakic is in the organization and I believe he understands hockey.

I would love to be a fly on the wall when Joe Sakic talks about our organizational strengths and weaknesses. I think he's now a key cog in the wheel without the title but one that everyone listens too. Does he believe we need to go another full year before declaring one of our centers available. Does he already know who he wants as a one-two center punch? Does he believe we should keep all three and continue with the potential of having three scoring lines? Would be fantastic to peek inside his mind for a day.
